Repeat after me: Its a BUG!! not a feature

[ #11324 ]

RARRR!!! The only thing that pisses me off more than unreported bugs is people who find bugs and then ASSUME ITS A NEW FEATURE!!

        - hacked Foo/Bar.pm to work with perl 5.6.1 (ExtUtils::Liblist has
            changed although its documentation has not)

The module name as been changed to protect the TARGET OF MY WRATH!

Even worse, the "hack" dives into private, internal MakeMaker classes.

As icing on the cake, the "hack" decides which to do based on the version of Perl not the version of MakeMaker. So upgrading MakeMaker does not help.

I hate this job.

  • Yes. My new hate source is URLs with spaces in them. BUG EQUALS FEATURE SO LETS USE IT FOLKS WHOOHOO! http://hooboy.int/sign my guestbook.html!!!!
    • Correction. URI with unescaped spaces.
      As a long time user of Netscape this
      has been a thorn in my side for sometime.
